Donisthorpe Hall’s third consecutive 24-hour endurance walk was a huge success. John Fisher reports.
The third consecutive 24-hour endurance walk raised £25,000 which brings the total of proceeds over the three years to £95,000 for Donisthorpe Hall.
Chairman Andrew Brown called it a “magical achievement,” and praised the walkers for their magnificent fundraising efforts.
Howard Bott, Marcia Brown, Ashley Cohen, Michelle Cundle, Susie Gordon, Jonny Jerome, Richard Levin, Daniel Myers, Sean Rainford, Suzie Shenderey, Tony Sherman, Nicola Smaje and Rosaline Vickers were the walkers who took up the challenge.
The walkers, buoyed up by loyal supporters who sent them off in torrential rain from Golden Acre Park, finished the walk at the care home.
Main sponsors were Beaverbrooks and Manning Stainton. Course sponsors were Gill and Geoff Caplan.
